A SCOUT from Japan is in the country to recruit rugby players.

Yoshihito Yoshida, a former Japanese international, will be selecting two male and four female players from a trials organised for this Saturday at 5pm at the Ba Provincial Free Bird Institute grounds.

Speaking on behalf of Yoshida, Free Bird Institute chairman Hiroshi Taniguchi said this was once in a lifetime opportunity for these players.

He said the players must be over 18 years of age to qualify for the recruitment.

"We have arranged jobs for those who will get selected. They will be working for the second hand computing operator and one of them will get the job of a physical trainer," Taniguchi said.

"During the day, they will be working and after hours they will be playing rugby. They will be paid $4600 each per month."

Taniguchi said they preferred experienced players to attend the trials.

"They will have to apply for the sports visa so they will need to have some international exposure to support that," Taniguchi said.
